      PORTLAND, Maine — Jairus Lyles scored a career-high 37 points — including eight in a row late in the game — and the University of Maryland-Baltimore County defeated Maine 83-79 on Saturday, ending a seven-game losing streak.

      The sophomore Lyles connected on 14 of 19 shots from the field, including three 3-pointers, for the third-most points in school history. Joe Sherburne added 12 points with 12 rebounds.

      UMBC (6-19, 2-8 America East) defeated Maine on Jan. 9 in the first round of conference play, but had gone winless since. Lyles was deadly down the stretch, scoring three straight times down the court, and adding a pair of free throws as UMBC stretched a four-point lead to keep Maine at bay.

      Maine's Kevin Little hit a 3-pointer with five seconds left, pulling the Black Bears (8-15, 4-6) into striking distance.

      Little and Devine Eke scored 13 points each for Maine — Eke added four blocks. Aaron Calixte scored 18.
